Import and Export Custom Clearance
in Sharjah, UAE
Sharjah is a key hub for import and export activities. The custom clearance process is an essential part of this trade, ensuring compliance with UAE regulations and smooth movement of goods.

Custom clearance in Sharjah is carried out by various government agencies such as the Sharjah Ports, Customs and Free Zone Authority, which works to facilitate trade and ensure compliance with UAE regulations. The process may vary depending on the type of goods, country of origin/destination, and other factors. Businesses that are registered with SPC Free Zone that are engaged in import and export activities will have to get a Customs Code to conduct their business.
